RE: Opinions of an Egyptian American

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Chuck -

Thousands dead? True.

Billions wasted? Not proven yet. If it makes me safer, then it's worth it.

War premised on lies? Are you talking about WMD? If so, then everyone was
lying a year ago.

Justification is that we have prevented an invasion? Correction, prevented
another attack. There's nothing hypothetical about Islamic Jihad anymore nor
is it a folly. Otherwise, how many WTCs, USS Coles, US Embassy bombings are
you willing to accept?

We obviously are looking at the same events from a different perspective.

Finally, while I respect your differing opinion, can you refrain from
personal offensive attacks ("stupid", "stupider" and "dope-slapping"
included)? I doubt if you would use those terms if you were having this
conversation with someone in person.

Bill-
Thousands of American dead, billions of dollars wasted, a war premised 
on lies--all with the goal of imposing a democratic system of government 
on a populace that regards us as an occupying force.  And the 
justification is that we have prevented an invasion of Hawaii (or main 
street U.S.A.).

I wonder how many times we will have to repeat this folly before America 
decides to choose its wars more carefully?  And while I still believe 
these discussions are best left to other forums, my occasional 
dope-slaps seem to be ineffectual so I may as well join in. Chuck Utzman,
P.E.
